GRADUATE PROGRAMME – Master of Education in English Language and Literature
(Ac. year 2017/18)
Year 1 and 2
Students enrolled in this programme are required to earn 60 ECTS credits through courses leading to teaching competences. Thirty ECTS refer to general teaching competences, and 30 ECTS to subject-specific teaching competences. If the student’s other major leads also to a teaching degree, the 30 ECTS credits pertaining to subject specific competences are split between the two majors. If the student’s other major leads to a non-teaching degree, the student earns the necessary credit in the following way: 15 ECTS through ELT courses, 10 ECTS through the ELT graduation thesis, and 5 through an additional teaching-related course(s) offered either by the English Department or by the Centre for Teacher Education.
Note 2: Linguistic elective courses (Pragmatics and Psycholinguistics) can be taken in both 1st and 2nd year, while ELT elective courses can be taken only in the 2nd year.
